Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are located in Newcastle, Oklahoma and primarily serve adopters in the greater Oklahoma City area and within the state of Oklahoma. However, for the right families we are willing to consider out-of-state adoptions!

About Our Rescue Group:

Oklahoma Beagle Rescue, Inc. was established in 2004 and is the only known Beagle rescue in the state of Oklahoma. Our founders began the rescue in response to the growing numbers of beagles ending up in kill shelters all over the state. They began their rescue experience in an all-breed rescue and eventually concentrated all their efforts into rescuing the greatest and most loving of all breeds - the beagle.

Come Meet our Pets:

Look for us and our partner rescue, RockySpot Rescue, at pet events in the Oklahoma City area! We also participate in adoption events at Petco and other stores, where you can meet the dogs in person (though we do not adopt our dogs on site at our events).

Our Adoption Process:

Potential adopters must complete our online adoption application at www.okbr.org. The application asks for information about your family, past and present pets, and your plans for the dog(s) you want to adopt from us, as well as personal references and vet contact info if applicable. Once this application has been approved, we schedule a home visit by one of our members, who will talk with you and your family and meet any other pets, and see where the new dog will be living. (If you are an out-of-state adopter, we will contact our rescue network to see if a rescue local to you can send someone to make the home visit.) If the home visit goes well, and your references and vet have good things to say, your application will be approved!

Once you have been approved and selected a dog, you will be asked to fill out our adoption contract. This contract is very basic; one of the most important things it specifies is that if you have to give up the dog for any reason, it must return to the Oklahoma Beagle Rescue. If you have friends or family who wish to adopt the dog, they will have to go through our adoption approval process as well.

We also require an adoption fee that covers the cost of the vet care the dog has had since it has been with us. The fee is capped at $200. This fee includes spay/neuter and microchipping, as well as an adoption pack containing items such as treats or toys, and a supply of any medications that the dog may be on. You will also be provided with copies of vet records for vaccinations and any other medical treatment that your dog may have had since he or she has arrived at our rescue. (Our rescue dogs are examined by a veterinarian upon arrival at the rescue, and tested for heartworms and other parasites. While at the rescue or in approved foster homes, they stay up to date on vaccinations and flea and heartworm preventative.)

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
